"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
(John 14:6 KJV)
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made."
(John 1:1-3 KJV)
Jesus Christ is found throughout the Holy Bible from Genesis to Revelations. In Genesis, He is found in the plurality of God: "... let us make man in our image..." (Genesis 1:26 KJV), as Our Awesome God finished creating the universe. John 1:3 tells us that Jesus was the principle creator. As God, He is an eternal Being and has the same characteristics as His Father, God. But Jesus Christ is the Son of Our Awesome God (Matthew 16:16). In Revelation, He is the final conqueror who subdues the nations in battle (Revelation 19:15-16).
So when we say that Jesus is the Son of God, we, mean that Our Awesome God has begotten His Son in His very own divine nature. When begetting is used it gives you a visual picture that holds two truths: 1) God the Father is not God the Son and God the Son is not God the Father. They really are two different conscious Beings that relate to each other in perfect unity. But while saying that, 2) we need to remember that the Father and the Son are one God not two Gods. They are just one essence and one divine nature. Our Awesome God has always contained this perfect image of Himself called His Son.
God has given two important tasks to Jesus Christ, His Son. 1) The first task was salvation of sinful man, so He sent Him to the cross because then man would have a way to get to heaven and eternal life (John 14:6 KJV), thus making Jesus the only way to eternal life. 2) He gave Jesus the judgment of all of mankind (John 5:22). So we need to realize that Jesus is our salvation and will judge us, especially, those who won't believe in Him.
If you are a Christian and believe in Jesus Christ, you should tell all that you meet about Jesus Christ. If you aren't a Christian, you need to come to our church or join any church that preaches and teaches that Jesus Christ died for you, taking your sins upon Himself and arose the third day to sit by God, interceding for you when you sin. Our Awesome God wants all to enjoy our peaceful heaven with Him. He loves you! He wants you to love Him and follow Jesus Christ!
Join us at LWBC as we work in Our Awesome God's vineyard to tell everyone about Jesus Christ and His salvation. We start with small groups on Sunday at 9:30 AM and Worship Service at 10:30 AM. There are many opportunities to learn about God in our programs. See what you can do!
